The Irwindale Police Department is Fighting Breast Cancer by Participating in the Pink Patch Project

Slide122.PNG
The Irwindale Police Department is again participating in the Pink Patch Project, an innovative public awareness campaign designed to bring attention to the fight against breast cancer and to support City of Hope in combating the disease. 

The Pink Patch Project centers on a vibrant pink version of our police uniform patch. All of our police officers will wear these pink patches on our regular police uniforms for the entire month of October this year during “Breast Cancer Awareness Month.” The pink patches are intended to stimulate conversation within the community and to encourage public awareness about the on-going fight against this disease and importance of early detection. 

The Irwindale Police Department is again collaborating in this campaign with City of Hope, a world-renowned cancer hospital and research institution located in the San Gabriel Valley.  As part of our initiative, the Irwindale Police Department is selling pink patches and PVC pink patch flag patches to the community. Proceeds from the sale of these items will go directly to City of Hope to fund the research, treatment and education needed to help find a cure. 

Irwindale Police Department Pink patches and PVC pink patch flag patches can be purchased at the Irwindale Police Department lobby (5050 N. Irwindale Avenue, Irwindale). You may also purchase them on-line at shop.pinkpatchproject.org. For 2018, the Irwindale Police Department has again partnered with the Los Angeles County Police Chiefs' Association and public safety agencies from across the nation as part of the program.  More information on the Pink Patch Project, visit their website at www.pinkpatchproject.com. 

It is estimated that approximately 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. While the disease can have a profound impact on the patient and her loved ones, it is also one that can be effectively treated through early detection and early treatment.

The men and women of the Irwindale Police Department are honored to take part in this worthwhile initiative and to aid in the fight against breast cancer!
